    When the PSL rusty magazines were dirt cheap I was converting the DP20 drums to PSL. Like you said, Now its not worth cutting a $80 mag.

    TEC Tactical is a Licensed 07/02

    I'm not going to be casting sheet metal thicknesses.
    The exterior needs to be the proper shape to fit the stock PSL just like a PSL magazine does, but the 2 rounds that are side by side in the PSL all the way to the feed lips can come together somewhat like they do in the Lahti, just not quite as early.
    I'll try something like double or triple the PSL thickness as it nears the upper feed lips, and then mate it to the Lahti donor body.
    I don't want a PSL that is so different that it will not take stock PSL magazines.

    Centerfire Systems 132 Corporate Dr. Frankfort, Ky has a new product listed.
    PSL/FPK Rifle Mag 7.62x54r Polymer 10rd with Steel Reinforced Feed Lips $29.99
    I ordered one just to see if they look sturdy enough.
    The place I was going to machine my PSL barrel just shut down and now I need to find a lathe I can use for a day once my chamber reamer shows up!

    Chamber reaming is the easy part on a PSL barrel. Cutting the extractor groove is the challenge.

    The extractor groove is not that difficult.
    Finding a lathe is much more difficult!

    My PSL has not been completed yet so if you guys get a chance to test out those magazines and see if they function I'm sure a lot of us would appreciate hearing about it because if they do function I want to buy a bunch of them.
